The Confusing Car Name Thread: S1/E2, 22B/WRC etc…

Recommended Posts

As we keep getting reoccurring posts on the naming of certain cars, I thought I would compile a thread with all the answers in one place. So, for any future discussions, people can be directed here.

If you’re here because someone has linked you to this thread, then chances are you have posted one of the dreaded trigger words. Now what did you say?

I said S1E2.
Go to post 2.

I said 22B.

Is it "Reliant Robin" or "Robin Reliant" ?
Reliant Robin. Wikipedia has got this one right and there is no excuse for the latter! :smiley:

In this game? It's called RS200 ;)

The only Reliant product that everyone wants in a rally game!  ;)
Only because most people don't realise Del Boy and Rodney actually had a Reliant Regal!

The amount of cheapness in that is almost offending.

That someone at Scalextric needs to do some more research @VirtuaIceMan!

Oddly if you look at the Sport quattro range on the Scalextric website...

...the evolution cars are all correctly designated "E2" apart from the one you have pictured: the researchers must have had a day off when they released that car. :smiley:

Alright, question time for the 22b or similar? 

555 branded car released officially?  Embroidered seat with 555 ?

Top Gear didn't get involved with the S1/E2 debate, they just called it Audi Quattro: http://www.topgear.com/car-news/classic/20-lovely-things-london-classic-car-show#10

This is probably a stupid question, but it's better to be silly rather than ignorant :)

The Group B Audi Quattro in Dirt Rally is the S1, right?

Yes indeed, the Group B rally car is a Sport Quattro S1. :smile:

Since this applies to the "confusing" part of the topic.  There was a lot of questions and accusations about the current Subaru R4, if it was taken out of the R4 category and allowed to be a proper WRC version.  It would look like this:




Pointing out the big wing!  Paul was quoted that it was the old Rally America version, which isn't entirely true.  The 2008 RA version (Proper name VS2008) indeed used the lower profile factory wing.  It wasn't until 2009 did they adopt (acquire?) the WRC wing, probably were leftovers from Subarus WRC exit.  

BTW:  All Vermont Sportscar ID their cars with VSyear or VSXyear for RallyX

Right, and to confirm anything else re this car in-game; it's the R4 class/spec, but looks different to the R4 in real life.
